We have reached Level 10 milestone on TF
It’s an awesome feeling, just thought to share the joy. Thanks goes to our buyers, supporters and fellow authors who motivated us with your great designs and kind words so far.
WE THANK YOU.
An elite author posted something I like at http://marketblog.envato.com/milestones/progression-studios-tops-1-million-in-sales-and-joins-the-power-elite/
He has a newsletter which buyers sign up too, to get the latest news for themes, send out a monthly newsletter with information about new themes and updates to old themesIt doesn’t take a lot of time to do “marketing”, the basics are just using social media to tell people what you have been upto..
Thanks for your notification (yes, it is a good point). But do you think we authors are totally not aware of such a newsletter subscription system? From our experience, we have an active list of newsletter subscribers with decent amount of click detected whenever we push an email. And we strongly believe these good buyers are the people (together with recurring buyers) bringing 50% of our sales and helps us survive in this drop-off period till now. But this is something extra effort we do on our side, and it is a choice. Envato should be the first one to focus on item promotion and they should do it with first priority, as their advertisement potential is way bigger than authors who are mostly individuals and small group of designer/developers.
Footnote: If each item sale pricing was 160 USD instead of 16 USD it would have made a great sense to pay some money for any custom ads / promotions. But it is not the case here. Otherwise there should be a collective minimum of 150 sales (at least) for every item. Again, this is not the happening here since last April.
So, when thinking logically from author’s point of view, paid advertisement or promotions does not make sense financially. Hope you got the point.
Every genuine forum threads pointing to ‘low sales’ gets someone (mostly non-author kind of people) jumping in just to interrupt the healthy discussion and hence cause the thread to be locked, obviously no answer from Envato this time also.
Fed up by seeing this again and again, tired in fact
Our team has a new template released. Please see: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/wordpress-partners-needed/185136?page=1&message_id=1303528#1303528
The one and only Helvetica
From last April the sales are dropping dramatically and these days it is becoming worst. This sudden drop is happening for the first time since our 3 years here. Please note, we released some new items as usual, but there’s no luck.
